Allison and Lucas both attended the American University of Paris, but did not meet until they were living in New York City and were introduced by a mutual friend. They connected over a shared love of Paris, the city where Lucas, a French-American, had grown up and where Allison had spent eight years. They dated for two and a half years before Lucas proposed in a garden in New York City. The pair then jetted off to Turks and Caicos.
